What Would You Condition Your Puppy to if You Could Go Back in Time?
I'd condition mine to a muzzle, to nail clipping, to brushing and to ear treatments. I'd also have worked very hard on eliminating or at least making a big deal out of puppy biting.
His nails aren't a problem but the other issues really are. I think if I'd have known then what I know now about his behavior I'd have done more conditioning on these issues. But we were focusing on bathing him, teaching him to swim (previous dog almost drowned as a yearlin) and getting him to just heel and respond to simple commands, instead.
Now, Zeus is a problem dog on these other issues.
How about the rest of you. Are there things you'd have pre-empted with conditioning during the puppy stage?
